Why on earth shouldn’t he be able to attract anyone he wants?
”But why don’t they follow the herd and go for women even shorter than them?
A tall, model-like partner can make for a great trophy on their arm.”Another theory is that when particularly short men (think Ronnie Corbett) go for taller women they are unconsciously evening out the gene pool as their children are more likely to be of average height. “Women are often drawn to charismatic men and shorter men often try harder on that front,” says Quilliam.
The research – based on 12,000 families in the UK – put the figure at just four per cent with all other couples consisting of a taller man or, in 3.5 per cent of cases, partners of equal height.To answer that, we compare the actual distribution with a randomized outcome.I made 10 copies of all the men and women in the data, scrambled them up, and paired them at random. That generalization, although true, doesn't adequately describe how sex affects our modern lives.In the first place, men's and women's size and strength are distributions. On the other hand, at five-foot-ten, Michelle Obama is taller than half of American men.They found that the woman was taller in 4.1 percent of cases.
